Group Description

Panentheism is a little corner on the net created for the purpose of discussing the Greek term denoting Pan-EN-theism, which means All-IN-God. This idea differs from Pantheism, which deems the universe and God as one and the same. Panentheism also differs from classical Theism, which emphasizes God as separate from the universe. Yet, Panentheistic thought has existed within both Christianity and Judaism for thousands of years. It continues to exist within the Eastern Orthodox Church as well as progressive churches and various sects of Judaism. It is even espoused by secularists. Panentheism is a melding of spirituality and science that the modern, rational mind can accept. Panentheism embraces the findings of science while also embracing spirituality and the existence of God.

Many scientists, theologians, and philosophers have written about Panentheism in the academic arena. These include: Phillip Clayton, Karl Krause, Paul Davies, Arthur Peacocke, John Polkinghorne, Alfred Whitehead, John Cobb, David Ray Griffin, Matthew Fox and Charles Hartshorne, among many others.
